Xu never said he saw Irving. He only said he saw an "English dead". Many think that it was Mallory he saw, while others thing Irving. Xu only spoke Chinese, so the conversation was mostly with hand signals. He was killed shortly after the conversation, so no one could follow up on what he saw.

Why does the thread say a winter ascent? Mid September isn't even remotely close to winter.
